Hairy babies (hairy ears?)


For mums of babies born with extra body hair, when did it start to fall out/get lighter?
Specifically my LO has hairy ears. Not really just a little either. While cute right now (though it makes her look like a baby werewolf) I'm kind of hoping we wont have to wax her ears when she's older...

Don't worry hun, it should get better. Lexi was born with a lot of hair on her forehead, ears, back and shoulders and most is gone now. I have a theory that some babies are sensitive to maternal androgen hormones (yes, women have some too) and that could cause them extra hair growth. I BF so she may be exposed to those hormones for a longer while. But it is just a theory, of course and there could be other reasons
